In room 2208 of the UBC Student Building lies the desks of 11 students who eat, work, and sleep at their tables at all hours of the day and night. In the darkest hours, the resident mouse scampers around the pipes.

This is The Ubyssey, The University of British Columbia's official award winning student newspaper since 1918, where I've had the privilege to work as design editor for two years. We publish a ~80 page guide at the start of the school year, one print issue a week, and one ~45 magazine sometime during the winter. Samples of our sweat and tears can be found below.

For the House of Cards issue, our writer compiled all the reports to write a story on all the earthquake-prone buildings at The University of British Columbia, located in the city of Vancouver that's famously due for a catastrophic earthquake.
